It's a big day for Clearwater, Florida as its city council votes tonight whether to purchase for $4.25 million a 1.4-acre parcel of land that's key to its redevelopment plans downtown, and to defy the Church of Scientology, whose leader David Miscavige has said he's willing to pay $15 million for the same empty lot.

Tonight's vote will be the latest test of the Gulf Coast town's resolve in the 42 years since Scientology literally invaded the city to make it a permanent base of operations. Since then, Scientology has taken over more and more properties downtown, turning it into a creepy ghost town while other nearby Tampa Bay communities have thrived.
